In 2013 Castiglion del Bosco and Massimo Ferragamo launched a limited edition Brunello di Montalcino called “Zodiac”. Every vintage is celebrated with a personalized numbered label featuring the corresponding Chinese zodiac sign, exclusively designed for us by renowned Intenational artists.
Zodiac is a wine of extraordinary character and individuality.
Every year the very best grapes are expertly selected from our finest vineyards to produce this rare Brunello di Montalcino Riserva, the fullest expression of our terroir and the singular characteristics of each vintage.
The careful selection of our finest grapes ensures that this riserva remains uniquely distinguishable over time.
A profound knowledge of our vineyards, paired with the singular characteristics of every vintage, defines the uniqueness and authenticity of these much-cherished collectors’ labels.
Collectors from all over the world covet these rare bottles; some of them are signed both by Massimo Ferragamo and the artist and are auctioned during an annual charity gala event where Castiglion Del Bosco raises money in support of different Italian as well as Chinese associations.
Year of the Rabbit
Zodiaco Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2016 is a wine with a great personality, which enhances the characteristics of a large territory, even in particular vintages.
The Year of the Rabbit label is based on an ancient model, originally from China and widespread throughout the world. The three rabbits symbolize peace, tranquility and luck through this visual motif.
